Yep I would think so!

If anyone could add the individual band name to the details page's notes when uploading, that would help too. "Steve Kimock" material here is a good preexisting example- lots of misc items went into the same section at first, then a couple of the lineups were later turend into separate sections after evaluation of what was coming in.

We already have a separate JGB section now for the one Seals project. :)

Share the music!! don't take the hassle threads to heart nagdot - lots of us have had our share of being hassled and hassling others in the spirit of good fun. just sometimes the "good fun tone" doesn't translate well through the written word/post. if some people are truly mean (mean people suck) - screw em and ignore em.
Anywhoooo, Melvin will be a great addition to the site - so much thanks to he and his management group in agreeing to joining the LMA.

Just to set anyone's mind at ease, forum thread hassles from random patrons are wholly separate from contribution system hassles from stickler curators. ;)

On topic, notes updates and expansion of the Seals section here is due within the hour.
